About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath. Mountain and valley views. Sleeps 8 in beds.

This new home – completed July 2015 – is less than five minutes from downtown Hood River. Located in the hills above Eastside Drive, our home has panoramic views of Mt. Hood and the orchards of the Hood River Valley. You can watch the weather crash into the mountain or relax to birdsong on our front deck. You’ll love being close to all the action Hood River has to offer, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet.

ZipHaus has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, with a master suite on the main floor. The master has incredible views of the valley and Mt. Hood, a king bed, a walk-in closet and a private full bath. The upstairs has two bedrooms (one king, one queen), two twin beds tucked into the wall of the TV room (with a 55" flat screen), and another full bath. There's a half bath downstairs off the laundry room. There's also a Pak N' Play and a booster style high chair for littler guests.

Inside, you’ll find all new appliances and furnishings. The kitchen is roomy and open to the dining room and living room, has plenty of storage and a large island with seating for four. The dining room seats six with room to spare and has fantastic views of Mt. Hood and the Valley. The living room features a gas fireplace and a 55" flat screen television, and double glass doors to the front deck. There's wi-fi throughout the house. A gas grill on the back patio is available for your use, and the front deck is a relaxing place to enjoy the views with a cup of coffee or a glass of local beer or wine.

Hood River is an outdoor sporting mecca – bicycling, wind surfing, hiking, skiing, kayaking, SUP and just about any other snow or water sport you can think of! Our garage is perfect for storing all of your outdoor gear.

Located just five minutes off I-84, ZipHaus has easy access to the Fruit Loop, Mosier Twin Tunnels, the Whoopdee Trail for hiking and mountain biking, and great cycling routes right out the front door. The Hood River Chamber of Commerce has fantastic links to the other many, MANY fun things to see and do in Hood River. (http://hoodriver.org/travelers-guide/things-to-do)

In the winter, you're just 30-40 minutes from world class downhill skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows, miles of cross-country skiing at Teacup Lake and Cooper Spur Mountain (along with some easy downhill runs), sledding at Little Jon and White River Sno Parks, and miles and miles of snowshoeing.

About Diane Zipper

We live in Portland and love Hood River!

Diane Zipper purchased this house in 2015

Why Diane Zipper chose Mount Hood

We bought this property in 2008. We'd looked up and down the Hood River Valley for over a year for a property that spoke to us, and fell in love with the view from Old Dalles Drive immediately. We were finally able to build in 2015 and absolutely love ZipHaus! It's amazing to sit on the front deck and just...be. You can see the planes landing at the airport on the west side of the valley, watch all kinds of birds winging by (including a flock of wild turkeys, though they mostly trot around the orchards), and watch Mt. Hood as the sun crosses overhead and eventually sets behind the hills of the Cascades. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Beautiful oasis in the midst of extraordinary surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Zip Haus is an absolutely beautiful property, and exceptionally well-maintained. It is in an ideal location, with access to Mount Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge and a great, walk-able town. This house was perfect for our family of four, but a larger family could comfortably relax here as well. Highly recommend this rental!

Beautiful home and spectacular view!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is THE perfect place to stay when you are in Hood River!! My "now" husband and I were getting married near Hood River, and came across this home. With all the stress planning a wedding brings, booking this house was the easiest decision there was! We had several close friends and family traveling from all over to share in our special day, and planned a come and go meet and greet for everyone :) this house is spacious with an open concept perfect for a family gathering, and was central location to town and many other places our guests were staying. Not only was our stay here wonderful, Diane the owner is absolutely amazing to work with!! What an added bonus :) She made sure everything was perfect in the home for what we needed, and put my mind at ease to just take in the gorgeous view and enjoy what was the most special time of our lives! Thanks again for opening your home to us Diane! MR. & MRS. Gilliam ;-)

Wonderful home and great owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent five lovely nights in this great Hood River rental and couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort, cleanliness and beauty of the home. The first day we had splendid views of Mt. Hood, but then smoke from wildfires in British Columbia obscured the view and turned our world gray. Fortunately by Friday afternoon a storm passed through and Saturday was a beautiful day for our niece's wedding picnic.

We would definitely rent this home again!

Peace, comfort, beauty

  • 5 of 5

Early summer at the Ziphaus was magical! Three generations from Boston gathered to celebrate the wedding of our daughter/sister/aunt, and stayed at this splendid house. Spacious, clean, modern, stylish, beautifully appointed (towels thick and fluffy, sheets soft and smooth, appliances all the latest), we cooked great meals and enjoyed local brews while gazing at the spectacular view of snow-covered Mt. Hood from the kitchen, bedrooms, and decks. Short drive to the gorge to watch kite surfers, and Hood River where we discovered gluten-free, soy-free ice cream. Perfect weather, deer in the pear orchards, a growing family of quail on the hillside, soaring birds and lovely wildflowers made for a perfect vacation.
